HPF will help Researchers to Find New Planets

HPF will help Researchers to Find New Planets

Astronomers are going to use a new spectrograph, called Habitable Zone Planet Finder (HPF), to study infrared signals from nearby stars that will allow them to detect planets with liquid water on them. The Penn-State led HPF is designed with precision in mind. It is capable of providing the most precise measurements of infrared signals…

Type IC Supernova was Caused by its Massive Star

Type IC Supernova was Caused by its Massive Star

Progenitor Stars are so massive that they can explode in a supernova despite losing their outer layers. A supernova is an event that follows the death of specific types of stars. It radiates more heat energy than our sun will in its entire lifetime. The primary source of heavy metals is also labeled as the…

Why Galaxies Stop Forming Stars?

Why Galaxies Stop Forming Stars?

The Quenching process of galaxies may vary from one to another. A Galaxy Cluster, or cluster of galaxies, is a structure that consists of anywhere from hundreds to thousands of galaxies that are bound together by gravity with typical masses ranging from 1014 to 1015 solar masses. Keeping the definition in mind, Galaxy clusters are…

Gravitational Waves could help us to Understand Dark Matter

Gravitational Waves could help us to Understand Dark Matter

A recent research suggests that we might get a mathematical relationship between black holes and dark matter pretty soon. Albert Einstein was the first man to predict the existence of gravitational waves in 1916. He suggested about these ripples in the fabric of space-time in his General Theory of Relativity. Some of the most energetic…
